Union Station

Union StationOriginally constructed in 1914 as a massive railroad terminal, Union Station quickly became a centering point for commerce, culture and community. Today, over 100 years later, Union Station Kansas City — a 501(c)3 non-profit organization — has reclaimed those monikers and added more. Today, this historic self-sustaining landmark located in the heart of downtown Kansas City is where our citizens connect, create, discover and celebrate. We incubate young businesses. We teach young students. We deliver world-class exhibitions. And, of course, we celebrate and inspire an entire Greater Kansas City community.

For Greater Kansas City, this “Paris of the Plains” future has never looked so bright. All roads lead to our hometown - the center of the nation, the heart of America, in two states connected by location and a sense of purpose. A place that feels like main street, USA but has become a major destination. A place with Midwestern hospitality but still on the leading edge. Union Station stands as the center and in the center of it all…just as it did 100 years ago. What an amazing success story of survival, determination and right purpose. Not only an architectural masterpiece, Union Station is living history and investing in the strength and vibrancy of a community to serve many generations to come.

Tom's Town Distilling Co.

Tom's Town Distilling Co.Tom's Town Distilling Co. is the first legal distillery in Kansas City since Prohibition.

Located in Kansas City's historic Crossroads district, Tom's Town draws inspiration from the country’s most polarizing and corrupt political boss, Tom Pendergast. Tom’s Town brings to life the glamorous magnetism of Gatsby-era bon vivants.

Rooted in a deco optimism, Kansas City flouted Prohibition under the Pendergast machine. “King Tom’s” irreverence for federal law in favor of bare-knuckles local capitalism allowed his town to emerge as the “Paris of the Plains.” Spirits, money, and jazz flowed like water in the city’s world-renowned fountains. Even though the town divided into political gangs, it united with a thirst for pleasure.

Today as Kansas City experiences its second cultural rebirth, the people are still thirsty. Welcome to Tom’s Town, where open, glamorous, free spirits reign.

The Arabia Steamboat Museum

The Arabia Steamboat MuseumThe Arabia Steamboat Museum is home to a true time capsule of frontier life in the 1800s. The Arabia was headed up the Missouri River in the fall of 1856 when she struck a tree snag and sank just north of Kansas City. Her cargo hold was full of 200 tons of supplies bound for general stores and pioneer settlements. As the years passed, the river changed course and left the Arabia buried beneath a Kansas cornfield. Finally, in 1988 a group of modern-day adventurers uncovered the lost Arabia and her magnificent cargo. They were amazed to find fine dishware, clothing and even bottled food all preserved in remarkable condition. Their find has been called the King Tut's Tomb of the Missouri River. So, if you're looking for an adventure your whole family will enjoy, discover the treasures of the steamboat Arabia.
